THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

BETRAYED

(Oakey/Wright)

 

“It says watch out for the Torries, they are splitting our country up. Between the north and the south.

People who live in south where the country is run from and there are plenty of jobs don’t realise how tough it is in the north.”

Oakey, Smash Hits 1984

 

When all the money's gone
When all the boys move on
No star to wish upon
When every race is run
In the quiet of the morning
Lying in the morning sun
Ruins of another country
Day has just begun
Blown by the desert breeze
No memory of trees
No mercy from the sky
No avenue to try
In the quiet of the morning
Lying in the morning sun
Ruins of another country
Day has just begun
When all the money's gone
When all the boys move on
No star to wish upon
When every race is run
In the quiet of the morning
Lying in the morning sun
Ruins of another country
Day has just begun
